The right jewelry can instantly uplift and enliven even the most simple of outfits. Whether you’re looking to add a few touches of sophistication to a casual ensemble or wish to
ramp up the glamor for a night out, jewelry is the perfect accessory to play with. From earrings and bangles to watches and necklaces, the array of options can seem overwhelming. To help you get the most out of your jewelry collection we have put together some tips to get started.
If jewelry is a new addition to your look, it is best to start with the basics, incorporating classic pieces that can be paired with anything in your wardrobe such as simple gold or silver studs, plain bangles or bracelets, or a fine-chain necklace.
These items can form the base of your jewelry collection and can be paired with each other to create a layered look that can be as understated or loud as you like. This foundation can gradually be built upon as you gain the confidence to experiment with more colorful and eye-catching pieces that reflect your individuality and personal style.
Dress for the Occasion
When selecting jewelry to complement your outfit, it’s important to consider the occasion. Just like your clothing, certain pieces may be too casual for formal events, while others may be too extravagant for everyday wear.
For special events such as weddings, cocktail parties, or date nights, opt for pieces that will add a touch of glamor and sophistication to your look such as lavish jewels like those at Anania Jewellers that will bring some sparkle to your look.
On the other hand, a relaxed outfit such as jeans and a t-shirt can be complemented with more playful and trendy styles that add a touch of flair to your look such as pendant necklaces, oversized earrings, or bangle bracelets. Ensuring your jewelry doesn’t overpower your outfit is key. Instead, your jewelry should enhance your overall appearance and complement your style.
Match Your Skin Tone
When accessorizing with jewelry, it’s important to consider your skin tone as this will determine which materials will complement your complexion and enhance your overall look.
Warm skin tones will benefit from coppers and gold, and warm-colored gemstones such as carnelian, ruby, and yellow diamonds. Cooler skin tones are complemented by metals like silver, white gold, and platinum, while gemstones such as lapis lazuli, blue sapphire, and aquamarine can flatter a cooler complexion. By choosing jewelry that compliments your skin tone, you can enhance your natural beauty and curate a cohesive overall look.
Keep Your Balance
Another important factor to consider when accessorizing with jewelry is to create a sense of harmony and balance between your clothing and accessories. Ultimately, the goal is to create a cohesive look that brings out the best in both your outfit and your jewelry. If your outfit has a lot of patterns or prints it’s best to opt for simple and understated jewelry which brings focus to your outfit rather than competes with it. On the other hand, bolder and more eye-catching jewelry can help add interest and texture to a more minimalist outfit.
Put these jewelry tips to use to bring some fun and flair to your look.
